The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR domain extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
